Tommie has been at Equine Voices for two months and recovering well.
She was a starvation case. She stood day in and day out in a pen, without food and little water while her owner drove past her each day ignoring the fact that this precious animal needed to be fed.
Tommie, like so many others, is a victim of neglect.
Fortunately, a neighbor contacted Equine Voices asking for help. They convinced the owner to release her to us. When we picked her up, it took over two hours to load her in the trailer, but once she knew we wanted to bring her home she jumped right in.
Monthly operating expenses are averaging $25,000.
Because of the economy, donations are at their all time low and their expenses are at their all time high.
Equine Voices Rescue and Sanctuary is a 501 c3 organization located in Southern Arizona. Equine Voices rescues Premarin (PMU) mares and foals from slaughter as well as working to end the senseless slaughter of horses for overseas markets where horse meat is considered a delicacy. At Equine Voices horses are nursed back to health, some are adopted or some live the rest of their lives at this beautiful sanctuary where they are well cared for by many volunteers.
Please consider making a donation to Equine Voices directly or buying a bracelet or three. It’s never too early to start thinking about holiday gifts as retails stores already are displaying decorations.
Bracelets are one of a kind made with donated beads. They only cost $20 and are talk of the town. Every bracelet comes with a paw charm to commemorate what the Beading Divas to the Rescue do — raise much needed funds for animal charities.
